Donna Elvira ready for PL!
:thumbs: oh wow !!! This was a great performance. Act 1 was so full of fire and anger and in Act 4 you were so full of sorrow at the end. A really great display of both emotions and so expertly acted out. I really enjoyed it and wished for an even longer stage presence. Fantastic job, thank you so much Matea :)

Act 4 is already PL ok.

For Act 1 could you only complete the voice credit please:

> for the voice credit, please always include the full description that is in the Magic Window, here: "Donna Elvira, wife to Don Juan, read by..."

thanks, and I hope to hear you in many more plays soon.

woooo, I am totally spoilt here by great performances today. Compared to Attalus, now our Alonzo here has much more oomph and barely suppressed anger :lol: :thumbs: excellently narrated. I could almost see a vein popping in your forehead from heating up too much. :mrgreen:

Great job, only a small thing to edit (yes, again in the voice credit, seems this is your weak spot :lol: )

> voice credit: you forgot to say "read by Adam Bielka" ;)

thanks

Todd: I just saw in browsing that you missed the "Poor Man" from Act 3, Scene 2. Another role for the MW.

Here are Charlotte's lines:

Can anyone confirm if Zerlina in Mozart's Don Giovanni was influenced by Charlotte?

According to wikipedia, Zerlina and Masetto are country folk, so yes, there is a a big chance it was this scene that provided the background to them.

And your Charlotte is wonderfully acted out. :clap: I look so forward to hearing our dialogue together :lol: it will be great fun. You sound quite ingénue too, but switch to fierce later on. Well done ! Thank you so much. Totally PL ok.

Todd: you must have missed my comment about the poor man, I will insert the line into the MW.

Thank you.

In the translator's introduction to this play in the archive.org text, I think it says that Mozart's librettist went back to the original Spanish source material for the play rather than using Moliere's version, although a number of other folks did "steal" Moliere's material. (This was back in the day where such "theft" was almost regarded as praise, and no international copyright protected authors, playwrights, or composers anyway.)

But I think it would take more than just our translator's word to convince me.

Thanks, Todd
